Chelsea & Garret's Wedding | Sorella Farms in Evington, VA | Evington Wedding Photographer

This wedding right here...was one I had been looking forward to soooo much. When I met Chelsea and Garrett for our engagement session in downtown Lynchburg and Chelsea had this stunning black dress on and Garrett a sharp black suit I knew right then and there that we were gonna get along reeeaaalllll nice. But for real. They're like the sweetest, most kind and generous people you'll ever meet. Their wedding day was marked by their joyful attitudes in every way.

Something I love so much about being a wedding photographer is being able to celebrate with my clients. I think we throw that word around a lot and the meaning isn't always clear. When I say that I enjoy celebrating with my clients I mean that internally I'm thanking God for their marriage and I'm excited for how He will use marriage to draw them closer to each other and closer to Him. Chelsea and Garrett were seeking to glorify God throughout their wedding day and it was beautiful to watch. It's easy in high stress situations, like weddings, to let things get to you. The two of them showed incredible grace throughout the day. Not that things didn't go according to plan or anything like that but things that a lot of people stress over, they didn't worry about at all. They were pumped about marriage and pumped that their friends and family were there to celebrate with them.

It was such a honor to be their wedding photographer. I enjoy what I do for a lot of reasons. It's weddings like Chelsea and Garrett's that remind me why what I do is so special. Sometimes I forget and feel like just another vendor. It's good to be reminded every once in a while that what you do not only has value and meaning but also adds value to someone else. If what you do has no value and doesn't add value then maybe it's time to reevaluate what you do.
